Here are some reader’s comments about Inside Mom’s Mind:


Inside Mom’s Mind is a great story that provides both education on Alzheimer’s/dementia and living in a “facility” atmosphere as well as an emotional heartfelt recounting of the feelings and memories of having a loved one with Alzheimer’s.”

                an assisted living residence.

“My mother is now a resident of Crandall, due to Parkinson’s Plus, and I can relate to many of the same frustrations you site in the book. Your story could help many other people who are dealing with the same challenges.”

“When I finished reading Inside Mom’s Mind, I felt that I had accompanied you through the trials and joys of your mom’s last days. You made me feel I had walked in the corridors of the hospitals and nursing homes with you. You’ve portrayed the life and thoughts of an Alzheimer’s patient with compassion and realism…Your story ought to be a valuable resource for children of aging parents suffering from dementia.”

“The honesty and transparency of real everyday life experiences with Alzheimer’s disease is the best part of this book, in order for newcomers to the disease to be affirmed and helped, veterans of the disease to glean fresh ideas to try, and caregiver survivors to process their memories and find closure.”                                              --Norma McCue,

                                  Caregiver of Alzheimer’s parent


“Children with aging parents need to read this book, just as we previously read books on becoming a parent…When I started reading Inside Mom's Mind , I wasn’t able to put it down.”
